Johann Bourquenez: piano RaphaÃ«l Ortis: bass Cyril Bondi: drums Recorded in July, 31, 2007 by Sam in Geneva Plaistow Trio's music goes through all extremes.

PLAISTOW: Named after a song of Squarepusher, these three young musicians of French and Swiss origin play a music style which is hard to define. Thinking one is listening to jazz, the music suddenly mutates into semi-electro. One just managed to filter out a melody when it disintegrates into coarse, metalic splitters.

The jazz feeling of the drummer contrasts with the metal energy of the bassist and the electro attitude of the piano player. Cyril Bondi (dr) and Raphael Ortis (b) are both Geneva born and have been up and down the local scene with different bands in various styles. Johann...
